I have a winch and I am always ready to help a fellow jeep if need be, and almost always glad to do so.......
I have often heard "I don't need a winch, by buddy(s) has a winch"
Most winches for OHV are not for continuous use, by comparison like a winch on a crane or winch truck that is used day in and day out. The OHV winch do not hve gears for continuous use. Also winches (most are 12 volt) are hard on the battery, winch relays, etc. and frankly are not made for many many many occurrences. If you ask most people who have a winch how often they use them, most will say less than 10 times a year.
Sorry a little cynical there, but there is a good point to be made.
Be a good buddy, get your own winch, learn how to use it, know it, take care of it, and make it your "baby"
This argument can also be made for OBA.
Ride Hard.........Tread Lightly.
